Police have praised the 'true bravery' of a woman who was 'lucky to survive' a knife attack at her home.
Oh no! One of those rare stranger attacks?
Risman Naitsoka, 40, of Grove Street, Wantage, stabbed his victim in the chest after she refused to have sex with him.
A rapist burglar?
Speaking after the sentencing hearing investigating officer, Detective Constable Martin Whaley, based at Oxford police station, praised the victim's 'true bravery.' He said: “I am pleased with the sentence the court has passed, and feel it reflects the true gravity of this crime.
“The victim has shown true bravery in seeing this case through, and justice has now rightly been served.
"She is lucky to have survived such an awful assault, and I hope this sentence encourages other victims of such offences to seek help and support themselves.
“The Police and Criminal Justice system are here to fight your corner and to bring offenders to justice.”
Wait, why would someone testifying against an attacker be 'brave' to do so?
During the case it was revealed that the stabbing took place at an address in Wantage on November 5 last year.
Naitsoka had been in a 'romantic relationship' with his victim which was described as 'tempestuous.'
Naitsoka went to the woman's Wantage home and while there he propositioned the woman for sex, which she declined.
